The ‘MacGruber’ Revival is Not a Sick Prank and Here’s a Photo to Prove It

Will Forte‘s comedic action hero character, who originated in a Saturday Night Live sketch, got his own movie in 2010 – a film which performed abysmally at the box office, but quickly earned cult status.

And Forte has shared a new photo of the core trio of actors to prove that this whole revival isn’t just some kind of elaborate joke. MacGruber Revival Cast Photo Forte shared this ne...

‘Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar’ Music Video Has Jamie Dornan Belting Out “Edgar’s Prayer”

If Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar was able to be released safely in theaters, we’re betting it would have become a sleeper comedy hit. Instead, it’s likely the movie is destined to become a cult favorite, gradually finding an audience as more people come around to the delightful goofiness this treasure has to offer. One such piece of pure silliness is Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan hamming it up as he gets his own ballad to sing in a breakout musical moment. Now there’s a whole music...

What were the worst movies of last year? Is that question even feasible for a year as bad — for the world, and for movies — as 2020? It turns out, yes, because 2020 had some real stinkers that the Razzie Awards must nobly name in their farcical awards ceremony highlighting the worst movies of the year. And most of the nominations come as no surprise: universally criticized movies like the Robert Downey Jr.-starring Dolittle, Netflix’s highly problematic softcore movie 365 Days, and Sia’s ableis...
